Westchester’s First Taiyaki (Japanese Ice Cream) and Dessert Bar to Open at Rye Ridge Shopping Center is open!


Rye Ridge Shopping Center, Plaza and South are excited to announce that Mama Mia Dessert Bar has signed a long-term lease for 1500 square feet in the space formally occupied by Red Mango in the main portion of the shopping center. The management of the shopping center believed that it was important to replace with another “frozen concept” as the use was well loved by the community and has been greatly missed. Mama Mia is the FIRST Westchester location to feature Taiyaki (Japanese Ice Cream). They also serve Mochi donuts, shaved snow and Korean corn dogs. This lease follows the recent lease to Japanese powerhouse Daiso who plan to open this October.

Lovers of Taiyaki and Mochi donuts will no longer have to travel to New York City to indulge. Taiyaki ice cream, easily recognized due to the fish shaped cone similar to a waffle is very popular in NYC and LA and we are honored that its  making its Westchester debut at The Rye Ridge Shopping Center.

Customer’s will have the option of choosing signature Taiyaki creations such as “Straight – Outta Japan” made with matcha black sesame ice cream, red bean taiyaki cone, unicorn ears and horn and topped with unicorn sprinkles.

Mochi Donuts – made from sweet  GLUTEN FREE Japanese flour that gives the donuts a chewy springy texture but yet light.  Mochi donuts have 50% less calories than regular donuts. The donuts are shaped into rings and each donut is comprised of 8 rings fried together. Mamma Mia will feature imaginative Mochi Donut selections such as Churro, Nutella, black sesame and guava pineapple.

In addition, Mama Mia will feature Japanese Corn Dogs with unique creations available such as” Original Crispy Ramen Hot Dog” and “Hot Cheetos Mozzarella” They also plan to serve elegant shaved ice and bubble tea. Erin Hinchey leasing agent for the shopping center had this to add, “we really felt it was vital to replace the Red Mango with a frozen concept. It’s essential to a well rounded shopping center. I am personally excited for people to discover Taiyaki ice cream, mochi donuts and Korean corn dogs for the first time.  Having a dessert bar that features delicacies that no other shopping center offers its obviously pretty special.”
